Big biting black flies when we're in our pool!
We have a 24' above ground pool, lots of woods around our property. We have lots of dead wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, etc floating on the water when we first come out, and I'm ok with that. But every single time we have to deal with this pesky (horse fly?) that torments us, occasionally biting someone. Got me last week near my mouth; about a year ago, it got my hubby on his face and he became frighteningly swollen...this year it was on his right hand, which got real puffy for 3-4 days. My kids have been lucky so far.
We've been unable to find any sort of nest to treat with Black Flag, but this has got to stop! Swimming should be fun, not annyoing. How do I handle this - citronella candles? Light some tiki torches? Put up fly tape? Please help with any other suggestions. Thanks!
